Coming Monday… (Use this weekend to start looking!)

Nonfiction Magazine Project:
Your job is to find a magazine article from home or online that interests you. It can be about anything (school appropriate) and there’s no length requirement. You’ll familiarize yourself with the article and become an expert on what it’s about. Then, instead of a book talk, you’ll give us a 2-minute magazine article talk. Here are some things to talk about:
–The main idea of the article –Why it interests you –Opposing viewpoints
–Possible bias from writer –Background info on the story –Your opinion on the matter
**Your goal should be to make everyone in the room want to read the article and judge for themselves.

At the end of your presentation be ready for questions from me (and a few of your classmates).

30 points in the reading category.  We’ll start these around April 22.

Have a good weekend!
